Whats been happening??

I havent updated the blog in awhile and we have had a lot going on! I will keep this post as short as I can so I dont bore ya! Last weekend we went to Enterprise Reservoir with our friends Danny and Chalein. We spent the day relaxing and having fun! Then they had us over for a yummy turkey dinner!

During this past week I have started painting Nates bedroom during has nap time. I put him in the spare bedroom and worked for about 2 hrs while he is sleeping. My mom and my friend Amy helped me chalk out lines and apply tape. The lines came out perfectly straight! The first couple lines I did, did bleed, but then my mother in law gave me the awesome idea of painting the line with a clear glaze and then with the color and it worked like a charm so the rest of the lines came out great! It is coming along really good and I cant wait for the finished product! I am doing a baseball themed room. I am doing an accent wall of baseball threads. I have the lines completely done, so now I just have to add the threads(thats this weeks project!) Hopefully it continues to go as well as it has!

On thursday Skyler had his last first football game ever! It was a great season opener! Skyler and the team did so good! They won the game 37-28.

Nate is getting so big, smart and is such a little stud! Here are some pics and videos we have taken of him over the last couple weeks.

I think the picture below is a spittin image of skyler!


This sunday I also got called to be the Laurel Advisor in our ward! I am so excited!! I have to admit I am a bit nervous and a little overwhelmed because I know a lot of the past leaders and they were amazing! I know I have a lot to live up to and I hope I can be as good of a leader as their past leaders! I am excited to get to know the girls and be there for them if they need me too! I love young womens and I think this will be the greatest calling ever!

Skyler had surgery this morning and I just heard everything went great! The doctor said he will be sore for awhile, but will recover in no time! We are so glad everything went great. Thank you for all your love and prayers!
